The UDRS embattled umpires received unexpected support.

Joel Garner, the current director of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and manager of the West Indies team on tour of Australia, believes the umpire’s decision review system, the UDRS, is ‘a gimmick that everyone’s been experimenting with’ and should be taken out of cricket.

According to Garner, the system removes the human element from the game. ’You still want the umpires to use their own judgment,’ he said. ’If you’re going to use it, it should only be used specifically for one or two things but not that you question every little thing that happens with the umpires.’
